Why We Love This

The Ultra is a full wrap to ensure coverage even if they have an extra hard way of twisting while pushing off the ground. It can also be used for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill. The thin neoprene and double layer of fleece make a very comfortable but tough boot that can be worn full-time for those horses with deep chronic sores.
Favorite Features
  • Effective against most hock sores
  • Great for horses with arthritic hocks to prevent chill
  • Thin neoprene and double layer of fleece for added comfort
  • Safe to be worn full-time

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Hock Shield Ultra is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 53.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect These hock shields are great. My horse was always getting scratched up in the trailer. Did matter how big the trailer was. These shields are perfect.
    Date published: 2019-10-16
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't keep them on him. These hock shields are so close to working. I bought the large/ex large size first for my 16.1 hand gelding. I didn't want to cause other issues, so I didn't tighten them much for the first week. They were down around his fetlocks every morning until I got the right tension. Then they stretched out just enough so that they wouldn't stay in place after three weeks, but his hock sores were much improved. I ordered the medium/small size and started again. Now, after three more weeks, these have stretched and won't stay up and this morning his hock sores were back to square one - bleeding and raw. I followed the directions for trimming the velcro to tighten up the fit on the larger pair and trimmed the smaller pair right away, although not as much. I still have some wiggle room with the smaller pair and will continue to do what I can. I believe you're on the right track, so please don't give up. My gelding is 19 years old, a big 1250 lb. bay and has always had a very fine summer coat. As he's aged, he's gotten even more thin skinned and I hoped I'd found the solution. We've been partners since he was 5 months old and I don't want his last years to be uncomfortable. It's even hard for the farrier to work on him due to the pain and inflammation. These hock shields are too pricey to keep having to replace them, but they're the best and most effective I've found. Bring the price down, keep working on them and you'll have a five star product and my full endorsement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought hock shields due to a camping trip where my girl rubbed her jock raw on hard ground. I only had to use one. She is now healed do to the protective cover she wore for three weeks. It did slip off twice do to not being put on tight enough. I would recommend this product to anyone.
    Date published: 2019-07-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These work REALLY well I bought these to replace my old ones that had worn out. I love the upgrade on them. They do not move! I did what others suggested and bought the smaller size. I have a 16.3 hand TB and the Sm/Med work really well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Purchased 2 weeeks ago. Does stretch quite a bit as others have stated. Happy with purchase so far, but not sure how long they will last.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job, stays on. Purchased for our 16hh paint gelding to heal hock sores. Use just in stall at night and they have been great. Based on other reviews, went with S/M size and they are perfect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well These work well for preventing hock sores. The new design does help them stay in place. I wouldn’t recommend turnout in these as they would twist and migrate with much movement. They are a bit hot. I was sent a package with 2 left boots and fortunately SM was able to ship a new package with right and left.
    Date published: 2019-05-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I bought my first pair last spring but I don't use them every day. I only use if the horses have to stay up on the dry lot -- like when my TB pulled a muscle last spring and had to be confined. He get's hock sores if he has to lay down on anything hard. The hock shields helped. They do stretch significantly over time, especially with washing. The first pair I ordered was a L/XL and they are starting to wear out/ getting torn. I'm ordering a second pair, in anticipation of the demise of the first pair, but this time I'm ordering the S/M. I think they'll still fit and will definitely fit after they've stretched. Overall the product works, and I like it. I wish they lasted longer. They sometimes come off or slip down on his hoof. It's a fine line between tight enough to stay on and what I worry is too tight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healed my gelding in 3 weeks! I have been battling hock sores in my 17.1H 1400lb ottb. I keep his stall heavily bedded and he was still having issues getting them healed. I decided to give his hock wraps a try, and WOW!! His sores are completely closed over and starting to grow hair in 3 weeks! I ordered the extra large size and they fit him perfectly they never fall down at night and they're easy to apply and easy to wash!! Well worth the money.
    Date published: 2019-02-04
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good idea for protection, but not very sturdy I bought these hock boots the second time because there is no alternative and they do the job. However, the material is not sturdy enough. The second pair made it only 2 months before the first hole showed up right at the hock where it is needed. I wish the company would use better material and they are pretty expensive to be replaced about every 3 months.
